I'm decorating my main and top floor in an "Asian" theme. The upstairs is going to be a Japanese rock/zen garden and I've got three rocks and two lanterns. I really want to know what flooring/wallpaper might be good.
A list of names of Japanese inspired items would actually be great.
If you're going to do a rock/zen garden for the upstairs you could go with the Garden Wall and the Sand Garden flooring.
For the Asian theme there's the Bamboo wall and Tatami flooring.
For the furniture there are a lot of Bonsai you could put around the house. They're cute plants that add to that feel. Also the figurine set. Also the Rock Garden Set.
For the main furniture you could go with the Exotic series.
Also, if you have a character and a town set up on this site you can go to "My Catalog" on the left hand side of the screen and go through what you think would look best. Mine are just some suggestions.
Even at my ugliest you always say I'm beautiful;
As you tear me to pieces.
If you're going for a japanese feel for your house, here are some things I know of: modern screen gold screen tatami floor 8 mat tatami 18 mat tatami hinangyo paper parasol samurai suit shrine lantern(s) as katanaPop stated, the bonsai plants, and the figurines. tokyo tower (obtained from gulliver) fortune shirt Chinese lion(Not japanese, but asian nonetheless) Chinese lioness matryoshka pagoda shogi peice tall lantern thats all I can think of.
I have an Asian themed house and my main floor looks awesome with the mossy garden set. Upstairs I have a Garden Wall, all the different rocks, and 3 different evergreen type bonsai on exotic end tables. And for the carpet I actually used Tropical Floor and put all the rocks on the little island, I think it looks pretty cool, i don't care what the HRA thinks.
